SWGoH Relic Review: Darth Sion

SWGoH - Darth Sion

Gaming-fans.com has been a staple in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes community since the beginning. From our Mod Guides and breaking news as a EA GameChanger to our Sith Raid Guide and more, our site seeks to help educate players about this highly complex mobile game. With Relic Amplifiers now in the game, Gaming-fans.com has you covered as we seek to continue to make the community smarter when it comes to how to get the most out of Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

Continuing the Relic Review series, this article will take a look at Darth Sion and his Relic, a lightsaber. As always these reviews compare a character at relic level 0 to relic level 7 and mods are not factored in.

Starting off, Sion gains a very solid 19,746 Health increase. This stat’s value is increased greatly by the Health recovery from Darth Traya’s lead which reads “when a debuffed enemy takes damage, all Sith allies recover 10% Health.” This goes nicely with his useful 12.08% Armor increase and meager 5.67% Resistance boost. In addition Sion gains an extra 9,900 Protection and he is one of the few characters to gain extra Protection from his Relic upgrade.

Offensively Darth Sion gains a somewhat disappointing Physical Damage increase of 1,536, but the 15.58% Physical Critical Chance increase will be very helpful. Finally, he receives a 6.75% boost to his Health Steal which is quite helpful since he is a tank and takes a lot of hits. Because Sion only deals Physical Damage, the increases to his Special Damage from his Relic upgrade can be ignored.

While Darth Sion is key to a Darth Traya-led team, which is very useful in several game modes, the team is falling behind because of power creep. In addition, Sion’s stat increases from his Relic are average at best. Because of these factors I put him in the middle of the Medium Prioirty tier.
